Hi all, Alli here.
Well, 2 months of CSA pick ups have come and gone, and August is here! We’re getting more of our fall planting done these days, along with trying to protect those crops we’ve already planted from the hungry flea beetles and groundhogs (and replacing those that just weren’t too lucky….). We’re also busy harvesting all these summer crops for you, though the relatively mild temperatures we’ve been having aren’t doing much to speed up the growth of some things (like the cherry tomatoes and eggplants!).
While I’m sure I could write tons more about all we’ve been up to at the farm, I got to this a bit late today and need to be up early to start harvesting! So I’ll just leave you with some pictures, the share list, and recipe ideas.
This week’s share should include:
Kale and/or chard (to be determined)
I tend to use a lot of these ingredients to make things like burritos, tacos, or tostadas. It makes for an amazingly simple and fast meal that is nourishing and tasty (just what a farmer needs!). Just sauté up some summer squash and peppers, then add black or refried beans til heated. Top with some fresh, chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, and parsley, with a little grated beet and some salsa, and there you have it–the perfect filling for your tortillas (or whatever)!
See you all soon!
